I have been skimming through posts, here while I have been contemplating purchasing as 03, 3 SVT from an employee and friend because I know I cant afford buying a new ST as much as I would love to and still mod and tune it. SO I finally broke down and will be purchasing when taxes com in. It is red, with the EAP, and winter package on it not bad condition interiors close to mint, custom wheels(though I will probably pick up a set of stock EAP wheels), it has a short ram, exhaust and a set of aftermarket headlights and carbon fiber invader hood. I have plans this summer to find a full intake for it, do a timing job, short throw shifter, clutch flywheel and throughout bearing inn it along with a full tune up and having the body gone through and touched up. plus getting a full tune and tuner for it. I am new to the focus scene though I have been in love with small svt/rs fords wince the escort RS and cosworth in the late 80s and early 90s but any advice would be appreciated plus being directed to any foci group in the metro Detroit area would be great. Thank and cant wait to get to know more of the community and more about the car.
